Bordeaux - In the City or Outside It?

Jump to last reply

Coming down the Atlantic Coast after 2-3 nights in Saintes, we plan to explore the region all around Bordeaux. Should we stay in the city, or in one of the apparently lovely villages outside it? We've read some travel guides, and places like St Emilion, Langon and several others sound good. As a guide to what kind of places we like, when we tripped around France in 2008 we really enjoyed Sarlat, St-Remy-de-Provence & Menton. But we didn't mind Nice either, and I guess Bordeaux might be of a similar size to that?

Any particular hotel or good B&B recommendations for Bordeaux or surrounding villages would also be welcome. As a guide to our budget, in 2008 we paid 84 euros a night for 2 people in Menton in late September. Slightly more than that in Sarlat, and slightly less in St-Remy. We'll be around Bordeaux late August/early September so are prepared for prices being a little higher because of it being the high season.
